Gimp application not responding mac

Apple Footer

HOw can I get it work? The most common problem with recent installs of the GIMP on a Mac are permissions problems, just like this error. Unlike most commercial program, GIMP is not a signed program. To fix it, you need to go into the security pannel in your settings and allow program downloaded from anywhere , and not just the signed ones.

GIMP is not opening in 10.11 El Capitan, help?

I expect it to take time. That's why I force-quit it. I will try to just not look as it abuses the hardware and I'll let you know if it eventually works. I do appreciate the suggestion.

As I said, I had this same exact thing happen initially but it eventually started up and has been fine ever since. Thank you Axeman, I left it "Finding" and came back 5 minutes later and it was installed.
